More than half of Canadians think that religion does more harm than good.

Courtesy of Global News:  

Just over half of Canadian respondents say they believe religion does more harm than good in the world, according to a new survey. 

The Ipsos poll, conducted for Global News, showed that 51 per cent of respondents agreed with the above statement.

“There’s a lot that’s happening in the world right now in the name of religion,” Sean Simpson, vice-president of Ipsos Affairs, said. “Of course, ISIL being the primary example that’s using religion to justify what they’re doing.” 

Simpson explained that the number is rising; when Ipsos asked the same question in 2011, 44 per cent of respondents agreed.

First they elect a handsome, super liberal Prime Minister, and now this? 

Is Canada trying to seduce me into moving there?

Because you know what, it might be working.

      Anon 2:06 you take that back. Gryphen is not gay. He just strikes out with women because religion.

  2. Sounds like our neighbors to the North have a whole lot more going for them than fauxknee wingnut kristians in this pretend theocracy.

    If there really was a god there would be no rethuglicans of any stripe. Kristianity and wingnutism aren't compatible.

    OT Rant

    On CNN last night, GOP asshole Rep Joe Barton said that all the congress members that were at the baseball field were traumatized.

    Joe, you fucking dick wad, how do you think all the small children at Sandy Hook felt? Joe, what did you do to help these children? Pass more laws to make getting guns easier?

    Fuck the entire GOP.

      Great questions to ask Joe Barton. The surviving students at Sandy Hook will have ptsd for the rest of their lives.

    Yes, we do have a pretty enlightened population, Gryphen; however, Canada does have a certain segment (small) who support Trump's policies and believe that our Liberal Prime Minister is a wimp. Just like Trump supporters in the U.S. they are blind to the orange blimp's failures and there is no way you can persuade them otherwise.

    Good thing you're kidding. Canada only wants people with exceptional job skills and education. Unless you're very rich or a live-in caregiver. Or can persuade a citizen to marry you.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
